Sometimes we need a bit of a helping hand to make changes to our lifestyle to make us happier and healthier. Health Trainers are here to offer you that helping hand! Health Trainers work with you to give you information and help you set goals to make changes to your behaviour and lifestyle. They can help you to access services and they can find local activities for you to get involved in.
Health Trainers are local people who have been trained and know how to help you make a real difference to your health. They have knowledge and experience of living and working in your community and understand how difficult it can be to make healthy choices.
The Portsmouth Health Trainer services can help with a range of issues, including: • Sensible drinking • Getting active • Emotional wellbeing • Healthy eating • Stopping smoking • Weight management
Health Trainers are a self referral service – anyone can access them. Just give them a call and speak to someone today.
You can also get your GP to refer you to Health Trainers if you would prefer.
Health Trainers are based throughout Portsmouth, in community centres, leisure centres and GP surgeries.
Please contact the service to find your nearest Health Trainer on 023 9229 4001.
